Montessori and the Special Child
Montessori and the Special Child by R.C. Orems is the first comprehensive guide to utilizing the Montessori Method with special needs children, written for the use of parents and anyone interested in this field.
Recall that Dr. Montessori started with special needs children; then worked with typically functioning children living in the inner-city slums.
Interesting that so many still think of Montessori as an upper-middle-class private school phenomenon.
